37 Things For Which College Students, and Others, Are Thankful

Here is my list of things college students (or anyone) can be thankful for… essentially my revisions to a list issued by The Odyssey on what ‘all’ college students are thankful for this season:    

  1. Any day class and/or work is cancelled.
  2. No alarms, i.e. sleeping in on days ‘off’.
  3. No line at Starbucks / Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
  4. Game Day. (Most especially when you have tickets.)
  5. Any and all victories.
